I don't ask for the meaning of the song of a bird or the rising of the sun on a misty morning. There they are, and they are beautiful. ~ Pete Hamill
Wall to Wall Geese
The little pond on Collins St. was completely covered in geese.
On Golden Pond
Canada geese on the Collins St. pond. The young maples ringing this pond are still gorgeous shades of gold and red.
Into the Fog

It was November--the month of crimson sunsets, parting birds, deep, sad hymns of the sea, passionate wind-songs in the pines. ~L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables
Gaggle on the Move
Collingwood has several urban drainagae ponds. My favourite is the one on Collins St. I spotted this family of Canada geese there this morning.

MOM!!! He's Bugging Me!
May 22, 2012.
I spent some time this morning photographing goslings at the harbour. They were real characters!
I can't get to sleep with you pointing that thing at me!
May 23, 2012. Another shot from yesterday's encounter with the goslings. As annoying as Canada geese are, the babies are adorable!
Long Way Down
May 24, 2012.
It's been a wonderfully warm day today! The goslings decided to celebrate with a dip in the harbour, a long way down for these little guys!
